This is the 54% illuminated Waxing Gibbous Moon from 6-20-18. For this image, I took seven different exposures, each with slightly different settings, and combined them into one final photo. This is done to get better surface details. This is an excellent phase to see lots of craters. Look along the straight line on the left and you'll see lots of craters, mountains, and valleys. Some of the larger craters even have smaller craters inside of them. #science #astrophotography #space #moon #luna #astronomy #astrophoto #nightphotography #sonya6000

A little throwback on my first ever Milkyway capture two months ago. I was so excited to capture the Milkway, that I literally woke up at 4:00 AM before the Alarm went off, despite of a full day hike. I had not planned any specific location to capture the Milkway, so I just kept on driving till I came across this desert field which was just perfect... Do you happen to have any stories to tell ? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #milkyway #astrophotography #milkywaychasers #stars #nightsky #natgeospace #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #astronomy #astrophoto #galaxy #universetoday #astro_photography_ #ig_astrophotography #nightscape #longexposure #nightphotography #space #nightpics #starrynight #longexpo #nightimages #fantastic_universe #stargazing #universe #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #nightshooters #longexposure_shots #amazingearth

La lune de midi - Lever de lune au dessus de Saint-Denis, le 17 juin 2018. Bonjour, La lune se levait à midi 30 hier, dans l'Est de l'île de la Réunion. Je trouvais ça sympa, ça tombait sur mon temps de pause, et j'avais envie de capter ce moment, pour montrer quelque chose d'original : un lever de lune en plein jour !!! J'ai réussi à avoir quelque chose d'original et je m'en réjouis 😃😃 Ce qui est original, c'est qu'au bout d'un certain temps, je me demandais toujours où elle était, la lune 😂😂 Oui, j'avais imaginé qu'elle ne se détacherait pas bien du ciel, vu qu'il y aurait beaucoup de luminosité... De là à quasiment, ne pas la voir... Ça, je l'avais pas anticipé 😉Ben, on ne la voit presque pas ! Il y avait un couple à côté de moi. Je leur ai demandé : "vous voyez ?" Ils m'ont répondu, "oui, on voit l'avion"... J'ai dit "non, la lune"... Ils ont cherché un moment, et l'ont vue, eux aussi !! Allez, regardez quand même, vous verrez !! . . . . .

Introspection. A good place to think is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by the silence of the night and observed by the immensity of the starry sky. Landscapes so beautiful that sometimes they are affected by pollution, it makes me angry. Wanting to generate change always starts with oneself, and thus bring a little sand.

If you want to see the glorious milkyway you have to travel to dark sites. No way to see this in or around a city. So I really like this shot just cause I have to get in the car and drive and drive to these places. Funny story about this photo, I traveled two hours and forty five minutes to get here. I wanted a beach shot of the milkyway. You ask "where is the beach?". Well the beach is behind the tree line. But I did not have cellphone reception, and the entrance to the park was closed and I could not find a place to park to walk to the beach. So I drove this far and I didn't get the shot I wanted, but maybe it's the shot and lesson I needed. Moral of the story, download the maps of where you going to be and do a little research🙈. Probably the best shot I have gotten of the milkyway. Thanks for reading!

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. • • The Milky Way was in full force this night. I can’t wait to get back out and get some more! • • #idaho #darksky #idahome #nightsky #idahodaily #astrophoto #astrophotography #astrophotography #milkyway #milkywayshots #milkywaychasers #milkywayphotography #stars #darkskyparadise #adventure #abandoned #abandonedplaces #abandoned #abandonedplaces #idaho_insta #ig_worldclub #ig_masterpiece #ig_photooftheday #ig_cameras_united #ig_captures #ig_astrophotography #ig_astrophotography

A newly gibbous Moon in the evening sky. The funny thing about this photo is that while the sky looks clear in it, the clearness literally lasted about 30 minutes before a storm came in lasting the rest of the evening. Not only that, I took the camera out in a plastic bag to adjust it the humidity an hour after a storm that came in earlier in the afternoon! To me it’s a game of hide and seek. Virginia summers usually have several afternoon storms, so I have to work around them to take astrophotos during the short-lived breaks. #astrophotography #astronomy #photography #moon #space #sky #solarsystem #universe #cosmos #astrophoto #naturephotography #dusk

I usually shoot the Milky Way with the amazing Nikon Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 ultra wide. . This image, however, was shot with my Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8, a lovely lens that regularly finds itself on my D810. . Zooming into the Milky Way opens the door to many fresh compositions. . . #nightsky #nightscape #nightscaper #nightphotography #nightphotography_exclusive #astrophotography #astrophoto #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milky_way #starscape #starrynight #longexposure #universetoday #pocket_longexposure #starphotography #astrography #werutah #utahgram #igutah #dream_image #dreamimage #world_shotz #worldshotz #exclusive_shots #master_pics #master_shot #master_shotz #earthpix #startrailchasers

Somehow I missed placed this capture of the large Sun prominence from a week ago, this one was taken the day before the image that I posted a week ago. So I have included the other capture for a comparison of what this prominence look like from one day to the next. Explore scientific AR152MM with 2”ERF. Daystar Chromosphere Quark, asi174mm.

​Hi everyone. I'm @mitchsquires, a kindergarten teacher and hobby photographer from Sydney, Australia. Thanks to @universetoday for inviting me to share my photos. My final post is from a recent holiday to New Zealand, and is taken from a farm near Thames on the North Island. The farm was situated high in the mountains overlooking Whakatete Bay. The sky was dark and clear, so perfect conditions for star trails. Shot with Canon EOS 500D EFS 10-22mm lens ISO100 60 minute exposure Processed in Snapseed #astrophotography #stars #nightsky #longexposure #nature #space #astronomy #nightphotography #galaxy #universe #landscape #milkywaychasers #nightimages #sky #cosmos #astro #milkywaygalaxy #natgeospace #nightscape #nightscaper #longexposure_shots #astrophoto #stargazing #astrophotos #thames #newzealand #startrails #startrailchasers Want to be featured?

🌘🔭📷 A Lua Crescente hoje, registrada aqui do Observatório Amador Plêiades - Destaque para esse Raro e Belíssimo momento, o V e o X Lunar! *Veja as 3 fotos para entender* A famosa pareidolia "X Lunar" é um padrão óptico bastante interessante criado por uma combinação bem peculiar de sombras e luzes na borda das Crateras de Blanchinud, La Caille e Purbach. É visível por quatro horas logo no início da fase crescente da Lua. No entanto, a Terra não estará sempre na mesma posição no espaço em todas as fases crescentes da Lua, o que significa que em alguns meses a feição só pode ser vista de alguns lugares do planeta.  Além do X Lunar, outros padrões interessantes também podem ser vistos na mesma sessão de observação, como, por exemplo, o "V", que se forma quando o Sol atinge o topo da cratera Ukert e as encostas vizinhas. #universetoday #moon #moonlight #lua #astrophoto #astrophotography #astronomy #telescope #telescopio #skywatcher #astrofoto #astrofotografia #astronomy #astronomia #astrofotografiaamadora #bbcbrasil

Hey everybody, long time no post! It's been over three months since I published a photo and about the same time since I've shot a new one. Social media is not for me these days and with the extra time, I've gotten to apply my time to a lot of other things, both necessary and just for fun. At any rate, it's nice to come back and say a quick hello to the community. Here's a photo from the weekend at a pretty popular location in the White Mountains. Even though it's been shot a million times, I wanted to create my own vision and had an idea that was a little different from anything else that I've seen. This is actually the first Milky Way photo I've shot in a long time that was a single exposure. The night was clear enough and I liked the silhouetted foreground, so I decided not to do any kind of composite work or stacking with this one. Hope you enjoy! #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #ignewengland #astro_photography #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeospace #milkyway #nightphotography #night_excl #fantasticuniverse #beautifuldestinations #ic_longexposure #artofvisuals #whitemountains #nightscaper #nightscape #longexpoelite #longexposhots #longexpo_addiction #earthpix

Refletiu nos meus olhos o teu brilho, difícil de encontrar algo semelhante, mas quando a encontro, passo horas a admirar. Perante tua luz estou encantado, extasiado, envolvido, atraído, confundido e entregue. Ah este ano-luz que nos separa, mas não importa a distância há um céu que nos une Seus sentimentos encontram os meus, e é assim que as galáxias se colidem. E eu vou dizer pra ela Que ela é a luz que me traz paz. . . . . . . . . . . . . #astronomia #astronomy #astronomiaamadora #astrophoto #nasa #lua #telescopio #space

Pinch me, I must be dreaming 😉👌🏼 A setting crescent moon, a rising galactic center, and beautifully clear skies helped make this dream come true. I’ve wanted to shoot astro here for years, but hadn’t had the chance. Until a few nights ago. It’s just crazy to me that this all lines up so perfectly!

Lembro até hoje da primeira foto noturna... Desde então, observar e fotografar as estrelas se tornou uma paixão, e nunca me perguntei o porquê do nome “Via Láctea”. Numa breve “googada”, encontrei isso: “As primeiras menções da Via Láctea nos levam até os gregos antigos, que chamavam nosso sistema estelar de “galaxias kyklos”, que significa “ciclo do leite”. Alguns pesquisadores acreditam que a nossa galáxia obteve esse nome por causa da sua aparência leitosa que se estende pelo céu, e a própria origem da palavra grega “galáxia” vem de “gala”, que significa leite.” Interessante! . . . #milkywaychasers #milkyway #stars #creative_ace #eclectic_shotz #depthsofearth #stellar_shots #global_creatives #outnaturedays #jaw_dropping_shots #shotzdelight #allnatureshots #planetdiscovery #longexpo_addiction #earth_reflect #sky_captures #skyscape #splendid_xposure #nightsky #nightphotography #ig_astrophotography #astrophoto #longexposure #nightshooters #longexpoelite #longexposureoftheday #supreme_nightshots #nightimages #ubatuba @night_shots_ @moods_in_frame @nightphotography_exclusive @longexpoelite @natgeospace @wonderlustcollective @longexposure_shots @milkywaychasers @astronomypicturesdaily @ig_nightphotography @ig_astrophotography @astro_photography @universetoday @nightphotography @timeless_universe
